ALL ARE CALLED

GOD has called me to pray over my favorite city New York.  He and i walked, and bike the city.  Praying His outpouring of Humility, and love.  That all would seek Him, See Him.  i learned so much.  Like He is Here.  There will be some who will listen and some who won’t.  You will see some seeds watered, and others you will have to wait to see.    All i keep hearing Him say is ” how will they know if they are not told, Faith comes by hearing THE WORD OF GOD”  so He  has called us all to speak His Word.  i am not saying believe God or be doomed.  That is not the Word He called me to share.  He called me to say, God is Good, Shalom, Raise them in the ways they should go and when they are older they will not depart, His creation declares His Glory,  as my strength grew weary, i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. He spoke Prayers of Blessing over people, He Prayed the children would see Him coming in Glory.  He prayed restoration and healing.  He showed me World Trade Tower points to HIM!

i can write a book alone on what happened in just two days in NY.  He wants us all to know that where ever our foot treads He is Before us.  Offer every step to Him, and watch HIM WORK.

Every encounter with someone is an opportunity to be Christ or see Christ.  Trick is. You must ASK FIRST.  Jesus keeps bringing this to mind.  How many times i went to NY  (anywhere) without any regard of whether God was there or not.  He is showing me ask Him to go before and with you and He Will!   As our Lord said. Do not worry what you will say The Holy Spirit will tell you, if they do not welcome you dust off your feet, it is not you who will lead them to Him, it is He that Leads us to Him.

Father lift the veil, open our ears, that we may see and hear You.

Power in prayer

Father be Glorified.  in case anyone has wondered where i have been, i have been hand writing it all.  This post comes to you via me feeling God wants this one out there in cyber space.

Let me start off with the Proof first.  i went out to our truck one day and saw my wallet opened on center arm rest.  NOTHING IN TRUCK WAS TAKEN.  whoever was in there the night before went threw the things but took NOTHING.  No drivers license, no checks, no credit cards  ALL THERE.   Today i go to fill up the truck and put my keys and iphone on back bed topper.  Proceed to buy MTO.  Only to come back to my truck, full of gas Keys and phone where i left them.   ok there is your proof.  Now here is what started all this proof gathering.  God has been Showing me, Telling me that ” we have Power in prayer” “to pray where ever you go, before you open mouth, as you drive, visit places.”   With this said.  The truck has been prayed over, in, and around it for that matter.

i feel the more important lesson here is  His people.  That NONE SHOULD PERISH   it is Written.    The truck  is but one of many experiences i have had with Gods protection (answered prayer of).  He is Blessing me with seeing that prayers for people have lasting affects too.  That just as there where people praying for me i know nothing about, i could be for someone else.  It is answered prayer of empty me Lord that i may Only carry YOU.

i find i make a more positive impact when i first seek God in interactions.  i have 43 years experience on how i impact people without seeking God First.  NOT SO POSITIVE!

He has shown me He placed me everywhere i am so He can pray for them through me.  The collage campus i found myself on, hearing Him pray Pour out YOUR SPIRIT FATHER THAT THEY MAY KNOW YOU.

This is the Secret Place i feel.  No one can hear your thoughts, unless you speak them.  OH but God can.  He hears everything.  So as i seek to be emptied, i believe Jesus is revealing His Nature of Prayer with Father.  Therefore answering prayer MAY i KNOW YOU.

added bonus lesson Only Gods Word ALWAYS BEARS FRUIT.

Faith vs. evidence

Jesus be Glorified!

i constantly war between not doing what i see worthy of His calling vs. He is using me just where i am.  Here is a passage from Andrew Murray’s book ” The Spirit of Christ” p.61 that brought comfort to this war in my mind and heart.   Father may Your Holy Spirit speak Your Truth through it to our spirit.

” In seeking for this power of the spirit, let us note the manner of His working.  There is one mistake we must especially be aware of.  It is that of expecting always to feel the power when it works.  Scripture links power and weakness in a wonderful way, not as succeeding each other, but as existing together.  “I was was with you in weakness…and my preaching was…in power”. ” when I am weak, then am I strong”  ( 1 Corth 2:3-5,      2 Corth 4:7,16 6:10,12:10,13:3,4)

The power is the power of God, given in faith, and faith grows strong in the dark.  The Holy Spirit hides Himself in the weak things that God has chosen, so that flesh may not glory in His Presence.  Spiritual power can only be known by the spirit of faith.  The more we acknowledge  our weakness , the more confidently we can expect the Spirits Power, even when nothing is felt”

in this reading i saw how when i am at ( what i perceive as) my weakest, that is when God is Glorified.  So long as i have any ounce of confidence in myself, God can not be Glorified.  For i then take from Him what is Only His.  It then appears that when i am doing nothing that He is doing everything.  This is where my faith lies.  Which then reveals to me the truth behind ” Spiritual power can only be known by the spirit of faith”

one of my greatest sins i feel is when i impart my beliefs/views onto God.  Thinking nothing can possibly come out of this.  Instead of holding true to His Word. ” My Ways saith the God of the universe are Higher then your ways, My Thoughts are higher then your thoughts “. It is becoming evidently clear how True this Word is.

We seek evidence , God already knows.  He needs no evidence here on earth.  So as we seek evidence here we miss the Truth in the spirit realm.  God is Spirit,  He lives in the Spirit, see’s in the Spirit.  Till He imparts to us Spiritual eyes, we will only seek to be satisfied in the flesh.  May we at once pray to have our eyes open to that which pleases God.  Not what pleases man.  Is not The Holy Spirit the Spirit of God Himself, testifying of Him,  Does not that same Spirit testify to us that He is at work perfecting in/us.  Not us perfecting He that Is PERFECT !

May we seek His Perfection, not ours.  May we seek to be full in Him, and Him fully through us.

i profess that it is our seeking of evidence  that is the true enemy of faith.  Faith is trusting/believing in God.  Evidence is trusting /believing in us.

Father may we only seek faith, not evidence.  To the Glory of Jesus Christ whom God sent to testify of His Glory.  Through His Holy Spirit that accomplishes what He sent forth.

Is 55:9-11 Zech 1:5,6 Matt 24:35  1Pet 1:25

God Is Humble

Abba Father i ask that i may know this Truth in my deepest being.  That You Lord would live it out through me here on earth.

Jesus humbled Himself.  Jesus can not be anything other than what He is.  Jesus is God. Therefore God is humble.  Humble to the point of not only unto death but death so that We May Have life.  He already had life.  He is LIFE!  He humbled Himself unto man! i can never know this depth of humility Lord.  It is only as i die that You may live this life in me.

In my finite mind i separated humility from God as if it were an entity unto itself.  Something outside of God, to be taken up.  This i learned today from my Lord is not the case.  Humility is not outside of God , it is God!

It is easy to attach love to God and aspire to reach that attribute.  Humility not so much.  As much as i thought love was the hardest i now see humility is far greater for without this there can be no love.

Father empty me.  Take this vessel that You called into being and fill it with Your life.  For as much as You live in me is, there life at all.  Break me, crush me, pour me out, to fill me up, to pour me out again.  My sin is ever before me Lord it is against You and You alone O’Lord i have sinned.

Isaiah 55:9-11. Matthew  24:35

Jesus Revealed to me

Father i can never understand Your Ways, though i delight in them.
i have not posted in quite awhile. God has taken me to the secret place. Today while asking for desire to do some reading. He some how lead me to come here. Thank You Father the iPad WordPress is back to normal. One of the reasons i stopped posting was problems on my page. So with all that babbling said May i Glorify You Lord.
Last year was amazing i meet Jesus for what i would call the first time. i came to learn that when you seek the Father He will Always lead you to Jesus. So God then put in my heart this prayer. Jesus i seek to follow You, i need to know Who You are first. Reveal Yourself to me.
As you know God is Faithful and He did as i asked. Pouring out one revelation after another.
This may seem elementary to believers but i rejoice in my ignorance. Here goes a simple fact i just had revealed to me. If God were to come down to earth and take man form He would act/respond,and be like Jesus. Duh you may say, for i too have read this 100’s of times myself. Yet when Jesus revealed it this week to me it sunk so deep in my heart. Jesus in essence was telling me “I will always show you The Father”. ” To know Me is to know Him.” Brilliant as Graham Cook says.
If i may speak for the majority? i think we view God as the one to give punishment and Jesus the one to love and comfort us. They are one in the same not to be separated. We can not understand Gods wrath anymore then we can understand His love. i am learning to take comfort in this. For if we could understand He wouldn’t be God!
The Holy Spirit is what plants these truths into our hearts. For only the Spirit of God can know God. It is written!
Abba Thank You for Your Word that brings Life. May All You have called be renewed in The Spirit. Isaiah 55:9-11 Matthew 24:35

Blessings from Romans

Today is amazing.  God answering my prayer can i spend time with You outside in the garden again.   i was outside cleaning the garden listening to Gods Word on I pad the four kids were out with me.  unrestrained and by my side.   i am trying to insert picture of  them but i accidently changed my settings and lost a lot of my old capabilities.   Father please restore to what i know.

Well lately God has been taking me back to the tree of knowledge of good and evil.   The one tree we were not fit to eat.   Why because Judgment is Gods.    So today He had me in Romans 1.  This confirmed what He was telling me about the tree.  

Father i pray that you are Glorified threw what you showed me.  That i may plant seeds for Your Harvest.

Here is what i wrote before i started yard work.  Romans 1 tells us the Holy Spirit convicts.  Tells our spirit what is right or wrong.  (us not others)  it is not us telling others what is wrong.  We are not the Judge.  God threw Jesus will judge.  ( hence why we have to follow Jesus for without His covering we are doomed.  Scripture tells us  this)

Romans 1:18   People suppressed the Truth.  They know about God for He made it known to them.   Ever since the world was Created.

Through EVERYTHING HE CREATED ( all beauty comes from God a gift to us)  God MADE HIMSELF KNOWN.

NO ONE HAS AN EXCUSE FOR NOT KNOWING GOD

me–see this is where i get frustrated i believe like God.  Because how can you look at the ocean, the sky, flowers, dogs, cats, lions, mountains, and not know, Only God could Create such things????

hence why i loved Texas when all those people flocked to God’s Creation the ocean.

Then if we see this why wouldn’t you want to know who created this???   If God Himself wants to know you, spend time with you.   Why not say to the Creator of the sky, mountains, lions etc.  Who are You?  Reveal Yourself more  Father?  Thank You for such Beauty Lord Abba.  God is Faithfull unlike man He will reveal more, honor your  Humility through your gratitude.  He not only will reveal more but open your eyes to even more of His Beauty.

Here is where the Truth gets divided.    God will reveal  (it is written,-along with Him was Jesus when He created All things.)  So God must then show you Jesus.  Oh what a Blessing.  The Best of Blessings of gifts.  Jesus who washes away our sin so we can go to the Father and have fellowship through the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit is still being revealed along with more of God and Jesus. 

Back to the division.  People will take God – but enter Jesus and noo wait a minute there is division there.  There are those who know the TRUTH….   That Jesus ( the Truth, Way, Life) is the ONLY WAY to God.   And those that don’t or refuse/surppress the TRUTH of what their God shows them.  Remember we have no excuse God ( the True Living God) makes Himself known to us.  So if He does ,wouldn’t it stand He would also reveal Jesus to us.   Well this division of TRUTH is another post.

Back to Gods righteous Discipline. (i like to call it) 

Yes they knew God but wouldn’t Worship Him.  –Worship to acknowledge one Greater then yourself, giving Thanks and Praise for all His Blessings and for Who He IS.

God poured out His anger.  Hello wouldn’t you be angry  if you gave and gave and gave only to have someone not even acknowledge you were even in the room?   Even mock you for Blessing them. ( beatitudes Thank You Abba for bringing that Scripture to Life for me)

So here you are creator of  the universe and all that is in it.  Your serving and Blessing someone and they don’t even see you in the room and/or  Mock you, talk about you?    Wouldn’t  you get mad????   eventually????  We get these feelings from God you know?

So why do we curse God for seeking Justice for His Name sake (Himself) ???????

 We would want, seek, admonish Justice.

Hence why we need Jesus for with out Him we will NEVER BE FOUND JUST IN GODS EYES. 

hence  why i love Romans   Because that which we judge others of,  we are all found guilty  of in Gods Just Perfect Eyes.   Hence why the Tree of Knowledge of Good and evil, was not fit for man to eat.

Judgment– God Alone is Worthy of and the ONLY ONE WHO COULD EVER FORFILL ALL THE LAWS OF JUSTICE FLAWLESSLY.

ISAIAH 55:1-11

Galatians

Father i want to love as You Love.  i can not apart from You, love.  i do not seek to be exalted but to love sacrificially.   Serving others not seeking to be served.  To be last,  overlooked.   Not seeking that any see me but only Christ that dwells within me.  i want to come to You always.  Not relying on my own words but seeking what You may Say.  For Only Your Words Promise a Harvest. 

Father You have Blessed me so much.  You are faithful to Bless those that bless others.   Father i want a heart that does not seek the Blessings but rather that all look to You.  Father Your Goodness is so Great that in my wishing to avoid  all earthly blessings, You Bless beyond what we can perceive,   Father Bless me to always see the Blessing, regardless how others/i perceive it as ugly.   Do not let me take my eyes off You God.  May i always know the privilege of serving just one of Your children.  For all are loved in Your Eyes.   May i only know the Fear of the Lord no other fear.

Father Thank You for such a wonderful dog.  Thank You for granting me the desires of my heart, beyond what i even dared to ask for. Thank You for showing me the Spirit does dwell in this house, and within us.  That peace can be among the animals so Peace can be among us.  Thank You for Protection of our marriage, family, friends, home, cars, animals.  All that You gave us to take care of.    Thank You for The Holy Spirit that leads me in All Truth and will Never leave nor forsake me.   Thank You for Hope that You give.

Father i ask for quick sale.  Blessings on new home,  and above all the heart to Love as You Love.  May i serve You in all i do.  With all i have been given.
